John Obi Mikel’s home debut ended on a losing note as Stoke City lost 2-0 to Bristol City in Sunday’s Championship game.
The former Chelsea star, who signed for the Potters in August after mutually parting ways with Trabzonspor, made his debut against Millwall.
In the game staged at the Den, the 33-year-old saw every minute of action as Michael O’Neill’s men settled for a 0-0 draw away from home.
Against the Robins at the Bet365 Stadium, Mikel held sway in the hosts’ midfield, albeit, they ended on the losing side courtesy of Nahki Wells and Andreas Weimann’s efforts.
The visitors started the game brightly and almost opened the scoring after six minutes, after Wells seized Sam Clucas’ back-pass but Adam Davies raced off his line to deny the striker from pulling the trigger. (Nation)
